ASLIA SA Street Leverage Book Club #2
Format: Inspired by ASLIA WA, this ASLIA SA networking event provides you with an opportunity to discuss the big topics in the interpreting world while enjoying nice food, drinks and company. Our first book club focussed on allyship and accountability for sign language interpreters. In this session we’ll be discussing Billy Kendrick’s ‘No One’s a Prodigy! Deliberate Practice and Sign Language Interpreting’ from StreetLeverage – Live 2017 | St. Paul.
“In his presentation, Billy discusses his belief that great interpreters are made, not born and explains that professional ethics demand excellence, mindfulness, and a plan to elevate our work to meet community needs.”
Read the article and come along prepared to share what interested, challenged or puzzled you about the article. Everyone is welcome. This session will be conducted in Auslan.
